Hi Everyone!

Linda Draper, one of our CLN members in St. Louis, MO, emailed me a couple of weeks ago suggesting we connect with churches who lost their libraries during Hurricane Ida, Waverly, TN, and other recent weather disasters. We’ve waited until today to begin this conversation. Linda shared that she has duplicates that she would like to send to a church in need.  If you know of a church that would be interested in these duplicates, click here to help us connect with these churches. Please get permission from a church before posting information. Some of these churches may be in need but not ready to receive anything yet.

Libraries in Smaller Churches

Many of our CLN members are serving in library ministry in smaller churches. Let’s say 100 or less in weekly attendance. What are your secrets to providing a library ministry that meets the needs and interests of people in your church? Click here.

Making Disciples for Jesus Christ Each Book at a Time

What does that mean today? How does that work in our churches today?  Why is that important for our ministries? Click here to participate in this conversation.

Budget Planning

Many of us are finishing up or have already turned in our budget requests for 2022. Or your church starts the budget year in October or another month. Budget preparation is an important aspect of what we do through our churches’ libraries. What have you learned this year as you participated in the budgeting process? Many of our CLN members do not have a library budget with the church. Those of you who have succeeded in getting the library on the church budget, how did that happen? Click here.

May God bless our ministries this week,

Morlee Maynard, Coordinator
